Taping for Trigger Points
Kinesiology tape can help to provide an accumulated off-loading effect by lifting the tissue around trigger point sites. When applied correctly, this allows an unloading to the vascular, nerve and the fascia to allow the treatment process to continue.
For more information about taping for trigger points, please see the NAT course details below.
